Hers was a life of unusual suffering, suffering, and unusal piety, and resigna lion. All that ever seemed to give her fiie least anxiety was the fear that her sickness might keep her husband away from his work. "Go,"' she would say, "and do vour dutv; 1 don't want to ieep you away from the work God has for you to do She submitted un-complaingly un-complaingly un-complaingly to God's will, and in the ;nidst of her deepest sufferings, she seemed more concerned about the sal-ration sal-ration sal-ration of others than about her restoration restoration to health. She expressed herself as satisfied about her own future, and towards the last, longed unceasingly for rest. f,We shall meet beyond the river, Where the surges oease to roll ; "Where in all the bright forever Sorrow ne'er shall pierce the soul."
